    Thanks, before I continue with the paintjob I'll show you the 2.5" HDD mount system:

    It holds really strong just with pressure... and you can still use the lateral screws just in case.

    Yah, really nice work. Drilling holes and tapping them at the EXACT position takes great skill.

    Thanks!

    Just pressure, but you can still use regular screws if you want.

    Only reason I didn't vote for this awesome effort was when someone said how similar it looks to something I never seen before & me being sceptical about it, it just made me lose some interest in it & was a difficult decision to not vote for it, shame someone pointed out there was a case in production that is similar which just took off some of it's shine for me :(.

    But it doesn't change the fact that this IS an awesome looking solid manually made rig & the skill & effort gone into it is perfect elGafas I was jaw dropping the instant I seen this taking form :D , love those hdd mounts too, very nice & wow you got sponsored with paint, nice paint :D brilliant :clap: btw this looks way better than the one it looks like :rock:.

    I am really in love with the idea how u just let everything open and no cover ups.

    Very well done

    Soooo.... are we now all interested in getting to know which massproduced product that this one is similar to, or is it just me? ;)

    Ah, very good to hear - are you going to use regular sleeving, or something of a more "exotic" nature, such as Paracord, for instance?
